I was also told that I need to do the following with TOR for more security. Is this necessary and in particular, when uploading files as I describe, would not doing the following mean my IP address, etc could be traced? I suspect the TOR browser by default is secure enough and that these steps are overkill.
Click the S then click "options" Therein you will see some tabs in the popup box....click "Embeddings" and check "Forbid Java" "Forbid Adobe Flash" "Forbid other Plugins" "Forbid IFRAME"
Then Click "Ok"
Once you have done this..then at the Top Left you will see an Orange button with the words "TorBrowser"
DAlso...Don't Forget to Click the "Forbid Scripts Globally" after clicking on the S ..... (That was a Good Catch @ ManInTheMirror, Thank You)a
